What to do...
Check if you have a battery with an affected Serial Number by using the Sony online battery checker. If you checked your battery pack before December 2016, please also recheck the serial number due to an additional issue. If your battery pack is affected please remove it from your laptop, call Sony to arrange a free replacement battery and use your computer with the supplied AC adaptor in the interim.
